Leave the M25 at Junction 7 and follow the signs for the A23 to Croydon. At Purley bear left onto the A23 at its junction with the A 235 (to Croydon). You will pass roundabouts and junctions with the A232 and A236 as you pass Croydon, after which the A23 bears left at Thornton Heath (at the Horseshoe pub roundabout).

Here you must go straight over, into Brigstock Road (B266), passing Thornton Heath Station on your left and bearing right on to the High Street. At the next mini roundabout, (Whitehorse Road/Grange Road) go left into Whitehorse Lane and Selhurst Park is on your right.

Parking (By car/coach): 

There is no available parking at the stadium. Some local streets are subject to time restrictions and permit-only requirements. Supporters are advised to leave plenty of time when looking for local parking.

For disabled supporters, there are a small number of bays available in Sainsbury’s car park which is located next to the stadium. These bays are not monitored by Crystal Palace FC.

A 20-25 minute road closure operates before and immediately after matches or events to allow pedestrians to leave the stadium safely.

Selhurst Park has limited coach spaces available which is reserved for Official Coaches only. 
By Train

Selhurst Park is within walking distance from several train stations that all have London links.

Local stations which are all under 30 minutes from London are:
- Selhurst Station
- Norwood Junction
- Thornton Heath

Please note: No Southern Rail trains will stop at Selhurst and Thornton Heath on Saturday due to engineering works.

Railway engineering work is taking place between Balham and Selhurst all weekend, closing some lines. On Saturday, a heavily reduced Southern service will run to and from London Victoria, with some services being diverted to start and terminate at London Bridge.

Buses will replace trains between Balham and East Croydon via Selhurst, or fans can travel via Norwood Junction which is operating as normal.

Everton fans travelling down should go from Euston on the Northern Line to London Bridge and then on the rail network to Norwood Junction. This is a ten minute walk to the stadium.

Everton Football Club does not condone the use of pyrotechnics under any circumstances. Any fan found using them will be subject to action by the Club and the Police.  Being convicted of using a pyrotechnic could also result in a jail sentence.  As a Club, we will also impose an indefinite ban on anyone caught using pyrotechnics. 

As well as the risk of a ban or conviction, the devices have a serious effect on others, particularly those with breathing difficulties and the disabled who cannot easily get away from the smoke.

We have noticed an increase of persistent group “bouncing” and “throwing of items”, including beer and items being thrown into the air. This has happened at both home and away games.

Although it has only involved a small minority of fans, it has resulted in both the Club and the Police receiving complaints from supporters who have become soaked in beer or have been hit by items thrown. This is anti-social behaviour and people should not have to put up with this. As a consequence, both the Club, Merseyside Police and supporters’ groups have discussed how this should be addressed.

Firstly, both the Club and the Police want to make it clear that we want ALL our supporters to enjoy their day and we understand that this may include singing and an element of “bouncing” as a group. 
However, a decision has been made that should home or away fans participate in the throwing of alcohol or any other items in any area of the stadium, they will be dealt with by Match Day Stewards with the full support of Merseyside Police Officers. This could culminate with an ejection from the ground or potentially an arrest, dependent on the specific circumstances.

This season, you will see more stewards and Police Officers on concourses, who will provide early advice should a situation look like it is getting out of control.

Please continue to enjoy the match but we ask that you also consider other supporters and how they will be affected by your behaviour and we ask for your support in this.

Thank you.


Club Supporter Liaison Officer Rachel Meikle, will be available on the day of the game until kick-off via or 07583189399.

A team of Everton Stewards will also be in operation at the Stadium and will be on hand to help with any issues.
